Domestic and family violence in our communities is real. In an emergency call the Police on Triple Zero
Domestic and family violence can happen to anyone. Research shows that as many as one in three people in the LGBTIQ+ communities have experienced domestic and family violence, either in their current relationship or in a previous relationship.
It’s time to ask yourself–is your relationship healthy or are you experiencing unhealthy behaviours?
It gets better
The Queensland Police Service is committed to ensuring policing services are accessible to all members of the community. Police work closely with LGBTI communities to develop partnerships, awareness and understanding, and their LGBTI Liaison Program provides a professional, non-discriminatory, accessible policing service to members of LGBTI communities.

Domestic and family violence happens when one person in a relationship uses abuse or violence to maintain power and control over the other person.
Abuse is not always physical. It can be emotional, sexual, financial, social, spiritual, verbal, psychological or technology-based. Or it can be some other form of controlling behaviour or threatening behaviour that causes the person being abused to be fearful.
